While Dorchester Hall is our permanent home, for the 2017-2018 academic year, GC students will live in Elkton Hall, while Dorchester Hall undergoes remodeling! Come learn more about our temporary home.
GC students had a great time visiting the Harper Macaw Chocolate Factory in Washington D.C.! Students took a tour of the facility, learned the process of chocolate making - from bean to bar, and participated in a chocolate tasting! Students also learned how Harper Macaw's founders are committed to use chocolate as a force for tropical reforestation. Each Harper Macaw product restores and protects deforested or vulnerable rainforest in Brazil. Haper Macaw also works with global and innovative NGOs to promote reforestation and ensure that cacao farmers are paid a living wage.
